Well, I'll certainly want to learn more about that -- I had no idea. (I wonder what sorts of mac-specific magic would break when you tweak that...)

Meanwhile, Anonymonk's notion of "File/Spec/" aside (I believe darwin is "unix enough" to fit within, perhaps something like the following would handle the range of situations, given that we are talking about unix-based and unix-like systems, all of which must have a path called "/tmp":

sub case_tolerant { my $t1 = (stat "/tmp")[1]; my $t2 = (stat "/TMP")[1]; (defined($t2) and $t2 == $t1); }

    I hear Schwern thinks so :) use to be more polluted than it is now, so I think File::Spec needs darwin entry to point to File::Spec::Mac

    my %module = ( darwin => 'Mac', MacOS => 'Mac', MSWin32 => 'Win32', os2 => 'OS2', VMS => 'VMS', epoc => 'Epoc', NetWare => 'Win32', # Yes, File::Spec::Win32 works on NetWar +e. symbian => 'Win32', # Yes, File::Spec::Win32 works on symbia +n. dos => 'OS2', # Yes, File::Spec::OS2 works on DJGPP. cygwin => 'Cygwin');
      my %module = ( darwin => 'Mac', MacOS => 'Mac', ...
      No. Really, not that. "Mac" in that context refers to "Classic" (pre-macosx, ie. OS-9), which is absolutely a different animal and doesn't work like darwin at all.
